Quotes

Caroline said: "Grace is doing well. William is really good with her, he loves her and helps out with her a lot."
...share which raised $100 million for the company, and partly due to this week's report from the Federal Reserve calling small-cap biotech valuations "substantially stretched. The latter comment has caused a significant, two-day sell off in the biotech sector.  After the pullback, Bluebird is trading at a market cap of $800 million based on 26 million shares outstanding with nearly $300 million in the bank, taking into account the secondary offering. Bluebird's current enterprise value sits at $500 million -- relatively cheap, in my opinion, giving the data presented to date on the company's gene therapy and the commercial potential if approved."
"Knowing that it was the strongest of the strong was reassuring"
...According to news reporting originating in Grahamstown, South Africa , by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "Due to the high heterogeneity of breast cancers, numerous recent patents describe improved methods of detection and classification which promise better patient prognosis and treatment. In particular, there has been a shift towards more effective genetic screening to identify specific mutations associated with breast tumours, which may lead to 'personalised medicine' with improved outcomes."
